A Fun St Patricks Day Craft for Toddlers

I am always looking for fun things to do in the winter with the little guy. Especially with the cold weather, we don’t always get the chance to go outside. The holidays always provide great inspiration for fun crafts that also teach valuable skills. With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I thought what would be more perfect then planting four-leaf clovers? This flower pot and gardening project is a St Patricks Day craft that is perfect for toddlers.

Steps:

  1. If you have a vinyl decal apply it to the flower pot the day before you plan to start the craft.
  2.  Use an Exacto Knife to cut four-leaf clover shapes out of the sponge.
  3. When you are ready to start, cover the decal tape a piece of paper over the decal (do not put tape on the decal).
  4. Have your toddler dip the four leaf clover sponge shapes into green paint and stamp shamrocks on the pot.
  5. Let the paint dry — it dries fairly quickly.
  6. Help your toddler add some soil to the bottom of the flower pot.
  7. Help your toddler plant the four-leaf clovers in the flower pot.
  8. Once everything is dry you might want to go over the paint with Mod Podge to seal it since acrylic paint is water-based.

Here is a quick video tutorial on how to make this St Patricks Day craft flower pot:

 

As you can see this is a super easy St Patricks Day craft toddlers can do, but it teaches lots of great skills including fine motor skills, patience, and the ability to plan and organize (spatial awareness). I recently read this post on the benefits of gardening with kids so it’s something I hope to do even more this spring and summer.  Plus, if your toddler is anything like mine, paint and shoveling dirt are always fun activities.

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic toddler, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Considering we may have more kids in the future, I want to document everything we do, so we remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
